Christmas Sparkle

Hello all and a special welcome to my new follower. It really is a pleasure to have you come by and visit.

My card today is another of those small ones made with leftover papers and snippets of card. The gorgous stamp is Wild Rose Studio coloured with Promarkers and I added touches of Sakura pen on the trees for a little 'snow'. The snowflakes are Tattered Lace dies and the ribbon, gems and sentiment are from my stash. Finally I added Stickles to the image and snowflakes for extra sparkle.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Divas By Design challenge 'Make it sparkle' (my 2nd entry)
I Love Promarkers challenge 'Use die cuts + no punches' (my 3rd entry)
Winter Wonderland challenge 'Winter olympics'
Pixies Snippets Playground challenge 'week 114 use snippets' (my 2nd entry)
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas challenge 'Ribbon, twine, fibres etc'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Anything goes'
Stampin' for the Weekend challenge 'Sparkle and shine'
Sparkles Christmas challenge 'More than 3 embellishments'
Magnolia-liciuos challenge 'Bling it up'

I'm off now to enjoy a pancake or two (or maybe even 3 or 4) - don't you just love pancake tuesday when you can indulge without feeling guilty !!

This is so lovely! That Wild Rose image is gorgeous.
This size of card is very popular among US and Canadian card makers.
Almost all of my local card making friends make that size exclusively!
